Love Still Wins!
And the crowds that went before Him and those that followed Him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
Matthew 21: 9
People can be fickle!
What a glorious scene of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem! It is a scene that brings joy to the heart, and has been doing so for almost two thousand years! This day is celebrated with such pomp and circumstance throughout most of the world and the symbol of palms are brought back to the homes to remember how great a celebration of this day is.
Yet we know that this same week would end with the Lord Jesus being nailed to the Cross! How quickly people change!
However, one thing did not change, the Love that flowed out from Jesus remained constant though out, even to the end, as He said:
“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
Jesus had total trust in the Father! Jesus surrendered all to the Divine Will and Love!
We know the end of the story! On the Eighth Day, that Sunday Most Glorious, Jesus Rose From The Dead! Hate loses!
Our Story and His Story!
We live in the world when people can be good to us or mean to us. But we have the model of Jesus to follow. If we live like Him, no matter what we have to go through, Love Wins! We will have the final Victory!
Happy Palm Sunday!
